Dog Food

This is a food post, not a puppy post. I'm being a little private about my new doggie.
I'm still getting to know her.
The hard thing is knowing how to eat as I adapt to this new animal, a baby.
Yesterday we devoured our home-canned chili. So easy. So tasty! Didn't nearly need to cater to the whims of the infant while we ate our easy food. Didn't need to cook.
Today she's rambunctious. Growing up. A real horror, frankly, but that's what having a puppy means. Time-out box. Pee wipings. (But: Really house trained, already.)
Food post? Pimientos de Padron. Tossed with hot oil. And, by association, small tomatoes tossed with hot oil. Some slices of ham from Marin Sun Farms. And a lagniappe of dipping sauce: Spanish sherry vinegar.
The dog went nuts.

Seriously this is one of the best ever food non-dog post/dog non-food post I've ever read anywhere. I don't know you but I know I love you.

Good dog!

Mouse: Glossy! Noice. Showered with Maldon salt, which is so much fun in the mouth.

Yellow Dog: Arf! I love you too. You make me blush.

Moonbear: Yesterday she was a handful. Today she is frakkin' brilliant.

When my Jack Russel was a puppy, he used to bark back at me when I told him 'NO'

Amazing, it was a single very special bark, that he only did in response to my "NO" command. He would bark, turning his head to the side, and walk away very annoyed. I regret I never made a video of it. A tiny little dog, with a huge personality at 14 weeks!

I miss those days... hard to believe he will turn 11 yo in a few months

Anna: Oh, yes, this is superfood. Tha best. (The dog is so cool.)

BKitchen: Well! Turns out she's a JUMPER, and I know you'll know exactly what I mean. We've had a little barkback (word?) but largely she's nice. Frisky, hella.
(Eleven yo? Lucky you!)
